EMTA Presents:

Corporate Bond Covenants

360 Madison Avenue, 17th Floor
New York City
(on 45th St. between 5th and 6th Aves.)

Friday, March 7, 2008
11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. (NYC time)

As corporate issues continue to dominate Emerging Market debt issuance, EMTA has initiated a series of events specific to the EM corporate bond world.  To date, EMTA has hosted annual Corporate Bond Forums in New York and London, as well as presentations by ratings agency representatives to discuss their ratings methodologies, including how corporates can pierce the sovereign ceiling.

EMTA is now pleased to host a seminar focusing specifically on the covenants, defaults and creditor remedies included in Emerging Markets corporate bond documents.  Speakers at this event will discuss the text and intent of these provisions, both under New York and English law.  They will also explore the provisions’ practical utility in today’s EM marketplace and potential alternative deal structures that the market may wish to consider.  Comparisons to sovereign bonds will also be explored.  Our presenters are Timothy B. DeSieno (Bingham McCutchen LLP), Nate Van Duzer (Fidelity Investments) and Tony Lopez (Clifford Chance US LLP).


Topics to be addressed include:


CLE credit will be given for this meeting.



This Legal & Compliance Seminar is part of an investor-oriented continuing series of panels and presentations that EMTA is pleased to sponsor on various topics of interest to promote greater transparency and efficiency in the EM trading and investment marketplace.

You are cordially invited to enjoy lunch during the Seminar.
